The Covenant Kitchen
Food and Wine for the New Jewish TableBook - 2015
"The ultimate kosher cookbook for food-lovers. From Red Pepper Hummus to Curried Cauliflower Soup; Gefilte Quenelles with Braised Leeks; Ricotta Gnocchi with Sage Butter; Spiced Lamb Tagine with Israeli Couscous; and Chili Chocolate Souffle, here are more than 100 mouthwatering recipes complete with suggested wine pairings, from the veteran cookbook authors and owners of the acclaimed Covenant Winery in California. Filled with the flavors of Italy, Provence, North Africa, Asia, California, and Israel, these original, easy-to-prepare recipes for appetizers, salads, soups, side dishes, main courses, and desserts take kosher dining to a new, upscale level. With more than two decades of professional food-writing and wine-making experience, Jeff and Jodie Morgan share their favorite recipes and -- in a first for a kosher cookbook -- suggested wine pairings, to give us a cookbook that respects Jewish customs, gives traditional food creative culinary makeovers, and introduces flavorful new dishes that will quickly become family favorites. The Covenant Kitchen includes informative sidebars on how to select the right wine for any occasion, on the requirements for kosher food preparation, and on how to prepare the basics (chicken stock, vegetable stock, mayonaisse, pesto sauce). Also included are sample menus for Jewish holidays throughout the year and the fascinating story of wine production and consumption in ancient Israel and throughout Jewish history. Accompanied by more than 75 beautiful, full-color food and wine-country photographs The Covenant Kitchen puts a fresh spin on one of the world's oldest culinary traditions"-- Provided by publisher.
